Thousands of meteors blazed through the night and into the morning of November 12, 1833, astounding the entire world. Nine lively poems are paired with color illustrations, and accompanying narrative about the cultures who may have experienced the event and the science behind "shooting stars" as described by astronomers, entice readers to experience one of the most spectacular sights of human history.
“The Night the Stars Fell” is the fourth published book by Sally Crum, and the first book (both print and digital) released by Wise Bird Books LLC, a newly-established indie-publishin company in Western Colorado. This might be the only book out there written by an archaeologist, Sally Crum, illustrated by an archaeologist, Eric Carlson, and published by an archaeologist, Aline LaForge, that is not about archaeology!
The poetry makes this a great read-aloud book for younger children while the discussion guides round out this delightful children's book and meet many school curriculum standards, for Grades K-4.
